How to Tastefully Match your Office to your Brand Colours

You work so hard to define your company brand and to make it stand out from the rest, so shouldn’t it be incorporated in your office décor?

Easier said than done, isn’t it? In trying to maintain a professional and classy appearance, we tend to stick to neutral colours. But this risks us coming across as boring and losing our brand identity.

We’ve put together a few tips of subtle and effective ways to include your brand colour scheme in your office space.

Step 1: Establish your accent colours

Logos and branding can be made up of just one colour, or even five colours! Consider which of your brand colours will be most suitable as your accent colour around the office. To not come across as haphazard and random, stick to one or two accent colours only, not more. Also bear in mind that the more unique colours will be less available in office furniture, so save those for the aspects that allow you to choose the exact shades and tones, such as paint or curtains and blinds.

Step 2: Take stock of your neutral colours

Determine what neutral colours are in the majority in your office space and pull your neutrals across the office for consistency. These constants will help your accent colours pop. Examples of neutral colours are shades of white, cream, grey, navy, brown, beige and black. These are best used for walls, carpets, desks and doors.

Step 3: Find the areas that you can get creative with

Sometimes an accent wall or having all of the doors painted in an accent colour can spice up the office. Maybe you want your boardroom to have more colour and branding than the rest of the office. Perhaps you’re renting office space and are limited with what your landlord will allow you to change. It could be that your head office is very particular about what you can and can’t do. But once you have an idea of your parameters, you can go wild within them.

Step 4: Visit Workstation

  • Office dividers and dividers for cluster desks can give you the perfect balance of your neutral colour with your accent colour, while remaining functional and fun.
